Schiit combo of a Bifrost DAC, Jotunheim Headphone amp and powered Audioengine 5+ speakers.
Description Of Issue
My Main system is working great!
It’s my Office system that seems to be out of whack.
Sound comes out of the iMac speakers even when it’s set to output to DAC.
I use a iMac for installing my Convolutions files that work on my main system with my Mac Mini.
You might, but I would expect the next response will point out that the screen shot above doesn’t actually include the device set-up for your office (Settings=>Audio=>Schiit Bifrost=>Device Settings - note there may be two screen here once you click on “Show Advanced” at the bottom) nor the signal path (which is accessed by clicking on the little glowing light next to a song that is playing). They probably need both of these to be able to ascertain what the issue is.
BTW on the Mac there should be a way of capturing just the part of the screen you wish to post rather than the whole screen. (On Windows it is Snip & Sketch, sorry I don’t know what it is called on a Mac.)
I cannot seem to disable the OS Mixer…damn it used to work great and I have no idea what changed…I do get the green lite when it plays on my MAC built in speakers…but cannot seem to figure out how to get it to go through my DAC again…Frustrating driving me mad!
I would have thought that Carl’s suggestion to turn on Exclusive Mode in your audio settings would have resolved that issue.
Unfortunately, I am at a loss as to what might help, but while you’re waiting for Support to get to you, maybe try to reboot your Mac Mini (if you haven’t already) and if that doesn’t help you could go to Settings=>Audio=>Schiit Bifrost=>Settings (i.e. the two gears)=>Device Setup and then press Load Defaults. Maybe that might get your setting back to normal.
